I toured the new rooms a couple of days ago.

The new addition is a three-story, narrow building just on the north side of the original building.

Yes, the new addition is set up so that, depending on demand, there will be three units that can be expanded from one-bedroom to up to four bedrooms. Basically, there's a one-bedroom suite with kitchen, bedroom, living area and balcony on the seafront side, and behind it three single rooms with a hall. So Tim can rent this as either a one, two, three or four bedroom unit.

I believe the new rates are now on the Banana Beach Web site. From memory, the four-bedroom unit in season will go for US$400. The new units will be ready in a week or two.

Tim has added a new pool, located between the front desk area and the main original building, across from the banana plantings. There eventually will be a restaurant and gift shop.
